'House of Cards' and 'Modern Family' lead SAG noms

Posted on

With Breaking Bad finally out of the picture, the race for TV’s prestige hardware is wide open. House of Cards nabbed three Screen Actors Guild nominations, including a nod for Best Ensemble. Also in contention for the top category are Boardwalk Empire, Downton Abbey, Game of Thrones, and Homeland.

… And not Mad Men. The AMC drama, about to enter its final season, was completely shut out by SAG, with zero nominations. True Detective earned two Best Actor mentions for Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey, but HBO’s short-season series was also left off the exclusive list of best shows. Overlooked last year, Orphan Black‘s Tatiana Maslany was nominated for Best Actress.

In comedy, Modern Family led the way with four nominations, including a nod for Best Ensemble in a Comedy.
